In Memory Of John Lyons

Such a sad time to mourn the passing of a dear colleague and friend in John Lyons who left us on Sunday 22nd May 2022.

John was such an influence in the asbestos world and also the wider world of Occupational Hygiene, he dedicated so many decades in the development of the BOHS Asbestos related qualifications and the Quality Assurance systems to underpin those through BOHS.

I for one will never forget him RIP to such a wonderful individual 💔

Our condolences go out to his family at this difficult time.
